Grant ready to unleash new-look Chelsea attack

Avram Grant is set to unleash all-out attack on the Barclays Premier League as he prepares to welcome back Didier Drogba.

The 52-year-old Israeli coach revealed he wants the Blues to play with at least five men in attack and their 4-0 demolition of Hull in the Carling Cup was just the beginning of a new era at Stamford Bridge.

Now Grant has promised more of the same as he bids to put his own coaching stamp on Mourinho's men.

Grant declared: "I think we have a good base and yes I would like Chelsea to play with at least five players in the attack.

"You saw it against Hull, it was an open game, sometimes too open, and we need to keep the balance but we will follow the attacking combination and system that we used against Hull.

"I think the players have tried to do their best since the beginning of the season but sometimes it didn't go well and sometimes there is a problem you need to fix.

"They gave everything they could but if they didn't score there is something we need to do better and that's what we are trying to do."
